Authentic Service

I am very excited for my sister. After twenty five years working for the same organization, she has taken a leap to work for herself. This is not easy to do, especially when leaving a comfortable, known situation. I’ve noticed a spark in her that just couldn’t ignite without her stepping out like she’s doing now. Her heart has always been full of compassion, especially for God’s creatures. Dogs in need always seem to find her, and over the years she brought many of them into our family’s home. Now she gets to live this for herself and for others as she counsels those who are grieving over the loss of their beloved pets.

I am passionate about helping others discover their authentic self by listening to God, growing deeper in relationship with Christ, and following a path where the Spirit’s whisper seems to be leading them. After much questioning and discernment over the years, my sister seems happier than she’s ever been. I think she has found her true vocation!

Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic selfhood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks—we will also find our path of authentic service in the world. ~Richard Rohr
